GREG STOREY What hours do you work?

De­sign prac­tice man­ager

net magazine - - PROFILE - De­scribe your work­ing cul­ture in three words Driven by de­sign (the en­ten­dre is in­ten­tional).

What’s on your desk­top?

A hand­ful of Key­note decks for the 2016 Stu­dios Sum­mit – a re­cent event I pro­duced for IBM Stu­dios lead­ers from around the world. A few an­i­mated GIFs I used for this week’s Austin stu­dio up­date email. My desk­top wall­pa­per is a photo I took of Jasper John’s amaz­ing piece ‘Ac­cord­ing to What’.

What lit­tle things make your life worth­while?

My am­per­sand base­ball cap from Hoe­fler & Co., a bot­tle of 2007 High Roller Caber­net Sau­vi­gnon, the Dou­ble-Dou­ble from In-N-Out, and an Oliva Serie V Me­lanio Maduro Tor­pedo. And travel; when­ever, wher­ever.

How of­ten do you hang out with other de­sign­ers?

I typ­i­cally hang out with non-de­sign­ers; peo­ple who work in a di­verse ar­ray of in­dus­tries. I like learn­ing about what other peo­ple do and the prob­lems they face on a daily ba­sis. When I do hang out with de­sign­ers, I try to spend that time with peo­ple who work in dif­fer­ent places as a way to check in with other seg­ments of the in­dus­try. It varies a lot, but I try to keep a some­what con­sis­tent 9 to 5 sched­ule. Some­times more, some­times less when I need time for my­self.
